Power Boat Handling Seminar

June 14 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Buzzards Bay Sail and Power Squadron presents this course based on Bob Sweet’s book, Power Boat Handling Illustrated.
• Do you fear docking your boat?
• Do you think it is much easier to parallel park a car than to dock a boat?
• Do you have trouble leaving a dock with a wind pushing you onto the dock?
• Is it a mystery why your boat behaves like it does?
This 3-hour seminar explains how and why your boat does what it does.
… and even better – how you can get it to do what you want it to do.

Video clips help you visualize common maneuvers and the use of models further enhances learning. 
The course covers the use of lines, departing from a dock, operating in a fairway, pivoting, mooring, backing, docking, steering, slalom, holding a course, running a range, and stopping quickly.
